Fruit Fly Remedy!

It's that time of year when the fruit flys come to swarm over and ruin your bananas! We go through this misery each year, and usually thwart it by putting the bananas in a plastic grocery bag, which is a pain to have to tie & untie everytime you want a banana, as well as unsightly for the kitchen counter. Well fear not, Dinosaurs and Robots has posted a recipe that claims to work brilliantly! Here is the recipe;

Gramma Gum's Never-Fail Fruit-Fly Trap
In a small dish / jar of water, dissolve:

a spoonful of sugar
a spoonful of vinegar
a few drops of liquid dish soap (doesn't need to suds up)

The fruit flies will be attracted to the sugary, vinegar-y liquid, but due to the soap they won't be able to take off from the surface of the water and will sink to the bottom. Works like un rêve.
